Central Little League: Charlottesville, VA

Tentative Schedule and General Information


STATE OF THE LEAGUE

We are thrilled to have your children participate in Spring baseball and softball this year. We have over 300 children registered to play this year, making this Spring the largest softball season ever and the largest baseball season since 2004! Additionally, we have over 110 volunteers who will help this season happen between Board Members, Head Coaches, Assistant Coaches, Team Managers, Field Maintenance help, and Concessions Stand help. Thank you to everyone for making this league a success year in and year out. Additionally, we are always looking for more board members, so please reach out to a current board member and ask about it or send us an email at [email protected].

By now, hopefully your child's coach has reached out to you, and you are aware of the practice schedule for the season. Baseball game schedules are set and posted at http://www.centralll.com and can be accessed by selecting "standings and schedules". Softball game schedules are still a work in progress due to some late registrations. If there is inclement weather on a day you are supposed to practice, your coach will make the decision whether to hold or cancel practice. On game days with inclement weather, the league will make the decision as to whether to cancel the game; for Saturday games, we aim to make a decision by 7am. If we decide to cancel, you can check the website or our Facebook page for an announcement. If there is no announcement, you can expect that the game is going on.

Please follow us on Facebook and Instagram, and feel free to post pictures of the games tagging us and using the hashtag #cvillelovescentral. We would love to see pictures of the kids enjoying baseball and softball!

As of right now, Opening Day is planned for April 16th and picture day is planned for May 14th. Opening Day ceremonies will begin at 8am at Pen Park for both baseball AND softball, and then games will begin at 9am that day. All games will be finished by June 4th, at which point the season will conclude. At Opening Day you can expect to hear about our annual fundraiser raffle, which raised over $10,000 last year. We are putting that $10,000 to great use toward installing a scoreboard at Azalea Park for softball along with two new batting cages at Azalea Park. The prior year we used our raffle proceeds to erect dugouts at Pen Park's lower field.

Also, please pay attention to our sponsors who are on league jerseys and on banners at the field. Their sponsorships help us underwrite the ability to provide baseball and softball to those families who can't afford to pay for it. Per Little League policy, no child is ever turned away for not being able to pay the registration fee.

Our COVID policy, adopted by the Board, is to follow CDC guidelines.  Please check the CDC website here for guidance on what to do if you or your child have been exposed to COVID-19.

We pride ourselves on having created a culture of mutual respect throughout our league that serves our children well as they learn to be supportive teammates. Please be supportive of all kids, coaches, and especially our volunteer umpires. If you see behavior that doesn't fit that model, please let a coach or board member know so we can address it appropriately.

Most of all, have fun this season! We love bringing the games of baseball and softball to as many kids as possible, and we can't wait to get this season started.

See you all on the ballfields!

- Your Central Little League Board of Directors
